A compact bi-fold card wallet using ortensia Wax veg-tan leather shoulder. This hide from the Badalassi Carlo tannery in Italy is a pull up leather – this means it is rich in oils and changes colour slightly in areas that are stretched or pulled. It's soft to touch and full of natural flaws and characteristics, giving it a rugged appearance that will patina beautifully. It's a beautifully rich blue.
The design gives you 4 pockets on the inside for cards or notes and a fast-access slot on the rear. From new you're looking at 1 or 2 cards in each slot but it will free up with use. Notes up to around 70mm tall will comfortably slide in halved rather than folded twice, that's about a £10 note or a dollar bill. There's no internal stitching, all pockets are full-depth. The wallet uses 2 weights of leather to reduce bulk, and it's all saddle-stitched together by hand using Vinymo thread.3 & 4oz veg-tan leather
